Knicks' Dennis Smith: Questionable for finale
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith is questionable with a sore left knee for Wednesday's contest against the Pistons.

Smith played 35 minutes in a spot start Tuesday, but he's picked up an injury along the way. More information may be available closer to tipoff.

Knicks' Dennis Smith: Team-high scoring effort in start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith totaled 25 points (10-23 FG, 2-9 3Pt, 3-6 FT), five assists, and one rebound in 35 minutes during Tuesday's 96-86 victory over the Bulls.

Smith moved into the starting lineup for Tuesday's clash, a position that has eluded him since returning from injury. With a number of players on the sideline, it was encouraging to see Smith total 35 minutes in the victory. It has been a disappointing season for the second-year man, due in large part to the uncertainty around his playing future at times.

Knicks' Dennis Smith: Starting Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith will start Tuesday's game against the Bulls, Steve Popper of Newsday reports.

Mario Hezonja was expected to start the Knicks' final games, but he's out sick. As a result, Smith will get the nod in what will be his first start since March 12.

Knicks' Dennis Smith: Plays 26 minutes off bench
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith played 26 minutes off the bench in Sunday's win over Washington, finishing with 15 points (6-12 FG, 3-5 3PT) and five assists.

The bigger news is that Smith returned to action after missing the previous three contests with a sore back. The hope is that he'll be able to take the floor for at least one of the Knicks' final two games, but his status for Tuesday's matchup with the Bulls is yet to be clarified. Coach David Fizdale has already stated that he plans on proceeding with Mario Hezonja as the team's starting point guard for the final two games, so Smith will presumably be in line for a bench role if he plays Tuesday and/or Wednesday versus the Pistons.

Knicks' Dennis Smith: Will play Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith (back) will be available Sunday against the Wizards, Ian Begley of ESPN reports.

Smith has played in only two games since Mar. 12, but he'll return to action Sunday after sitting the previous three contests. The NC State product will come off the bench, while Mario Hezonja will make another start at point guard.

April 6, 2019 05:56 PM
Knicks' Dennis Smith: Questionable Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith (back) is listed as questionable for Sunday's matchup with the Wizards.

Smith's missed the past three games due to an unspecified back injury. Coach David Fizdale's hinted that the second-year point guard's done for the season however and official designation hasn't yet been given. If Smith doesn't play, look for Mario Hezonja to carry a large load.

April 5, 2019 01:48 PM
Knicks' Dennis Smith: Listed out Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith (back) is listed as out for Friday's game against the Rockets.

This comes as no surprise, as head coach David Fizdale hinted earlier in the week that Smith was likely done for the season. The Knicks, however, are still not going as far as to rule him out for the final three games. With Kadeem Allen (concussion), Emmanuel Mudiay (shoulder) and Allonzo Trier (calf) also out, Mario Hezonja will be getting the start at point guard Friday.

Knicks' Dennis Smith: Out again, may be done for year
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith (back) is out for Wednesday's contest against the Magic and, according to coach David Fizdale, the point guard could be out for the year unless his back "unlocks," Steve Popper of Newsday reports.

Smith has missed seven of the past nine games with a back issue, and it's possible we won't see him again this season. We'll likely learn more within the coming days, as there's little reason for the Knicks to trot Smith out if he's not feeling 100 percent. Since joining the team, he's averaging 14.1 points, 5.5 assists, 2.9 rebounds and 1.4 steals on 40.7 percent shooting.

Knicks' Dennis Smith: Doubtful for Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith (back) is considered doubtful for Wednesday's game against Orlando.

Smith is nursing a sore back, and the Knicks expect him to miss a second straight game after he was held out of Monday's win over the Bulls. Expect Emmanuel Mudiay to continue holding down the starting point guard spot so long as Smith remains out.

April 1, 2019 06:48 PM
Knicks' Dennis Smith: Ruled out Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith (back) will not play Monday against the Bulls, Ian Begley of ESPN reports.

Smith is still battling the lower-back issue that's plagued him at times over the last month, and he'll return to inactive status after appearing in each of the last two games off the bench. Expect the Knicks to handle Smith with caution over the final 10 days of the regular season.

March 28, 2019 06:04 PM
Knicks' Dennis Smith: Will play Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith (back) has been cleared to play Thursday against the Raptors. He will come off the bench.

A back issue has kept Smith out across the past six games, but the sophomore point guard will make his return Thursday. It's unlikely Smith will play a full complement of minutes in his first game back.

March 27, 2019 01:04 PM
Knicks' Dennis Smith: Questionable Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith (back) is questionable for Thursday's matchup against the Raptors, Stefan Bondy of the New York Daily News reports.

A back injury has kept Smith out since March 15, but it could make his return Thursday. It's possible that he'll be on a minutes limit if he returns. More information may arrive following morning shootaround.

March 20, 2019 06:01 PM
Knicks' Dennis Smith: Out for at least a week
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith (back) will be re-evaluated next week, Marc Berman of the New York Post reports.

Smith "threw his back out" and will be sidelined for at least a week. In his absence, Emmanuel Mudiay should continue seeing an expanded role.

March 20, 2019 03:12 PM
Knicks' Dennis Smith: Sitting out Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith (back) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Jazz.

With Smith due to miss a fourth straight game, Emmanuel Mudiay should continue to start and handle the majority of the minutes at point guard. The Knicks haven't provided any indication that Smith has resumed practicing with few restrictions, so he could be in danger of missing Friday's game against the Nuggets, too.

March 18, 2019 01:40 PM
Knicks' Dennis Smith: Listed as out
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith (back) is listed as out for Monday's game against Toronto.

It'll be the third straight absence for Smith, who continues to nurse a sore lower back. Expect Emmanuel Mudiay to make another start at point guard in his place.

March 17, 2019 10:24 AM
Knicks' Dennis Smith: Remaining out Sunday vs. Lakers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith (back) has been ruled out of Sunday's game against the Lakers, Mike Vorkunov of The Athletic reports.

Smith is sitting out for the second-straight game due to his back injury after being considered questionable in the lead up to the contest. Emmanuel Mudiay will figure to draw another start with Smith out. Looking ahead, Smith's next chance to return will be Monday against the Raptors.

March 15, 2019 12:04 PM
Knicks' Dennis Smith: Ruled out Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith (back) will not play in Friday's game against the Spurs, Chris Iseman of The Bergen Record reports.

Smith popped up on the injury report on Thursday due to a sore lower back, and while there is no indication that the injury is serious, the Knicks will take extra precautionary measures Friday night. As a result, Emmanuel Mudiay is in line to start at point guard while both Kadeem Allen and Allonzo Trier should see extra minutes off the bench.

March 14, 2019 02:01 PM
Knicks' Dennis Smith: Questionable with sore back
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith is questionable for Friday's game against the Spurs due to a sore lower back, Chris Iseman of The Bergen Record reports.

There's no indication the injury is serious, but the Knicks will probably opt to take it easy with Smith considering the team's place in the standings. More information will likely arrive following New York's morning shootaround.

Knicks' Dennis Smith: Leads charge in loss to Kings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith scored a team-high 18 points (7-19 FG, 2-7 3Pt, 2-3 FT) while adding five rebounds and five assists in 32 minutes during Saturday's 102-94 loss to the Kings.

The former Maverick has been inconsistent with the Knicks, scoring in single digits in three of the last eight games, but Smith still has fantasy upside given the lack of other scoring options around him. The second-year point guard is being counted on as a big part of the rebuild in New York, but he still has questions to answer after taking a step back from his impressive rookie campaign.

February 24, 2019 10:12 PM
Knicks' Dennis Smith: Hands out 13 assists in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Smith tallied 19 points (8-17 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 2-3 FT), 13 assists, six rebounds, and two steals in 30 minutes during Sunday's 130-118 victory over San Antonio.

Smith bounced back after a poor showing against the Timberwolves, coming away with 19 points and 13 assists. This was an impressive win for the Knicks who have now won two of their last three games. Smith has scored in double-digits in seven of his nine games since joining the Knicks, adding multiple steals on six occasions. He is going to see big minutes down the stretch and should be rostered in most formats right now.
